50+51 Good News On My Dad

Well, this will sound odd, but my dad did not have a stroke!

He spent yesterday afternoon in the Hospital where they took an EKG or EKE or something like that and a Cat-Scan and both tests came back good, no evidence of a stroke at all.

They suggested he see a throat specialist which he did do at 1 pm today and he found that Dad’s one Ear was plugged up with hardened black Ear wax after getting most of that out all of a sudden my dad was able to swallow again, which he was not able to do yesterday and could not eat or drink at all.

The Doctor also wanted to run another test putting a tube into his stomach to look around and for that one hour test the Hospital wanted $22,000! or If my dad paid cash $12,000, needless to say I think I will pass was told to the Hospital, we are checking to see if we can fly him back from Florida to home in Canada  where all of the tests are covered by OHIP our Government Health System.

So for now I am very much relieved and will see what the next few days will bring.
